Mr Monkey in Portsmouth, 31st August

"It's a fascinating beast, you know"

Mr Monkey scampered up on to a railway bridge so he could look down on the hovercraft's landing apron. He watched the hovercraft rise up and set off into the Solent, and was pleased that he'd seen a hovercraft leave without being sprayed with water. The hovercraft is GH2142, Solent Express, a BHT130 made by British Hovercraft Technology (see where the BHT came from?) which can carry 130 passengers at 45 knots.
